    Torqbyte EKPM

    http://www.thepictaram.club/p/ekpm2

    Finally !!! Fully-programmable and CANBus-integrated Plug-n-Play #EKPM replacement solution for #BMW #N54 #N55 and #S55 cars allows the #DME tuning to stay in complete control of whatever #LPFP or 2 you decide to run in the tank. #comingsoon #torqbyte #PM3 #PM4 #J538x #e9x #e8x #f8x #f3x #135i #335i #ekpm2 #ekpm3 #335i #n54 #ekpm #torqbyte #pm4 #n55 #s55 #ekpm2 #pm3 #j538x #e9x #e8x #135i #comingsoon #lpfp #bmw #f8x #ekpm3 #f3x #dme



    So, what does anyone know about them?

    Nobody is talking about but it seems nobody really understands it.

    So what does this do? Applies to N55 and S55 as well.

    You can add in an additional LPFP?

    I don't know. But I'm speculating that instead of having to "Code" the EKPM you could "Tune" it.
    - But that depends on the XDF having the correct parameters to tune. There is currently no parameters for the LPFP in the XDF's.
    The coding aspect is covered here --> http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42012

    The quick and simple is that this is a replacement EKPM that will handle more Amperage for those that are running multiple pumps. Knowing torqbyte from their other LPFP controlers, you will probably be able to plug in and make tables for what happens when the computer requests "this much fuel" and when to turn both pumps, only one pump, and so on. They make some pretty nice stuff.

    Looking at their body of work they have some nice stuff but this seems to be their first N54 application.

    Ok, so multiple pumps will be allowed in theory. Awesome.

    A friend of mine uses the cm5-lt for his meth system swears by it because of full 3d mapping for progressive meth control. And twisted tuning is selling it as their evolve controller for their meth setup. I will be using it if I make the jump away from the jb4.

    Since the device is canbus driven won't it take some bandwith away from the obd2 port and make data logging or live gauges not work (if it hogs through port), or work slow?

    It mounts in front of the fuel pump control unit. It will drive 2 pumps but could drive more as long as they dont draw more than 40A altogether. If driving more than two pumps a pm3 "slave" can be added that supplies an additional 40A.

    Well this sounds like a winner. I'll be testing this out if acf ever releases the efr bottom mount kit.
